Tones and I buys second home on the same Mount Eliza street for $7.08m

By Rachel Wallace

Singer-songwriter Tones and I has splashed $7.08 million on a spectacular Mount Eliza mansion, just a few doors down from the $5.1 million property she purchased a year earlier, records show.

Documents reveal the Dance Monkey singer, who grew up in nearby Mount Martha and is also known as Toni Watson, purchased the lavish five-bedroom, five-bathroom property, complete with a tennis court, spa and pool with fountains, in late February,

Tones and I buys a second Mount Eliza mansion for $7.08 million.

Twelve months earlier, and just weeks before Melbourne entered its first lockdown, the pop star purchased a luxurious, five-bedroom “Passivhaus”-style property on the same sought-after Mornington Peninsula street.

The latest purchase brings the performer’s growing Mornington Peninsula property portfolio to three after she bought an $800,000 home in nearby Frankston in an off-market sale in late 2019. The home was reportedly bought for a family member or friend.

But the multiple-Aria Award winner’s most recent purchase on Mt Eliza’s so-called “golden mile” is by far the most extravagant.

The Mount Eliza home includes a basement wine lounge with views underneath the state-of-the-art pool.

Overlooking the coastline and with views of Melbourne’s skyline, the sprawling home features an indoor cinema with tiered seating, a basement wine lounge and cellar, a “gentleman’s office with a scotch bar”, a mirrored gym with a water fountain and a sauna.

In fact, with automatic front gates, security surveillance and “a carefully sourced row of towering palms”, the lavish mansion wouldn’t look out of place in one of Hollywood’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.

The show-stopping home also boasts a lift to a second-level parent’s retreat, also with a scotch bar, while the state-of-the-art pool comes with below-the-waterline windows, so those sitting in the basement wine lounge have underwater views into the pool.

Late last year, the pop sensation joined a growing list of celebrities to snap up multimillion-dollar homes in and around Byron Bay when she purchased a $3.3 million quarter-acre property,  just a few streets back from Byron’s trendy foreshore.

Boasting two separate homes on a single block, the property has a combined 12 bedrooms, six bathrooms and two swimming pools.
